Call of the Wild

Harris Hawk 2 by Tom Jones

Ken Duquaine Last March, members of the Sun Lakes Camera Club (SLCC) were treated to a Zoom presentation of the wildlife of Costa Rica by Phoenix Camera Club member Cindy Marple.

Looking Ahead to a Better Year

Ken Duquaine Is it possible that at long last we’re glimpsing the tiny light at the end of a year-long tunnel? One can only hope. And in that spirit, the Sun Lakes Camera Club (SLCC) is looking forward to its first in-person meeting since last March, on April 6 at 6:30 p.m., at the Baptist…

A Seasonal Treat for the Eyes and Lens

Ken Duquaine When one thinks of the Arizona desert, what probably comes to mind are stately saguaros, glowing chollas, or vast stretches of sparse, brown terrain.

Ann Posiviata It takes a lot of patience to sit in stillness. And then we welcomed the 2020 year, and we are now hip deep in stillness. As photographers, we have a head start in knowing how to be patient. Patient waiting for the perfect storm to chase, patient for the exact moment an egret…

Water in the Desert?

Ann Posiviata Yes, that’s right, it is monsoon season again. The desert is a very surprising and wondrous geographical location for weather—from the extreme temperatures of over 110 degrees in the Phoenix Valley to the freezing temperatures of 32 degrees in the depths of the Grand Canyon.
